Welcome New Jersey’s Big Autumn Pest! Clover Mites are Out to Play… and Cause Chaos in Your Home.

During fall, you might notice tiny red specks moving around on your home’s exterior. These small red pests, known as clover mites, can become a nuisance as the weather cools off. Our Ocean County pest control professionals want you to know more about these fall pests.

Clover Mite Behavior

Clover mites tend to gather on building exteriors that get a lot of sunshine, since this helps them stay warm. In many cases, these pests are seen on the sides of buildings that face south, west or southwest. These bugs can end up getting inside your home by crawling through tiny gaps around windows and doors. You might see them moving around your home’s interior near your windows or on curtains.

Clover Mites as Pests

Clover mites are more of a nuisance than a bigger threat. They don’t spread disease or bite humans or pets. They also don’t cause damage to building exteriors or interiors as other pests do. However, they can infest buildings in large numbers, which can make them harder to eliminate. Getting help from professional pest control experts is the most effective way to deal with clover mite infestations during the fall months.

If clover mites invade your home this fall, you can depend on our Ocean County pest control professionals for help. Contact Allison Pest Control to learn more about our pest control services in Ocean and Monmouth Counties.
